Here’s your free Detective Comics #27 reprint from Fig Newtons (lovable scamp in sweater not included)

May 29, 2013


One of the perils of running a comic book shop is having to look at someone’s treasured old collectibles and give them a lowball offer to unload them at your store. A corollary to that is bursting their bubble with a No, that’s not an actual Detective #27 dart. It’s a reprint from the Fig Newtons people — you know, the folks with the nonsensical treasure maps. I hope you can get your security deposit back for that Caribbean island. (This was much more common pre-internet, I’m sure.)

Incidentally, I used to love Apple Newtons, but I’m thoroughly convinced there were no actual apples used in their production. No apples were harmed in the making of this dunkable fruitish snack food.
